1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    It's as close as you can get to a harem fic without any sex too.

    And let's not forget...
    Apparently this wasn't Theon asking when Robb would make an honest woman out him. Could have fooled me though, xP

    That story jumped more sharks in the first chapter than Chunin Exam Day did in 100k and that's terrifying.

    I believe that Greyjoy alla Breve is a crack fic.It is, is it not? Does Andrew JTalon actually take it seriously?
    For a plot dependent on technical changes brought in a medieval setting, he does not concentrate on that even a bit. All work and problems are waived away. Most of the posts are filled with ridiculous dialogue and meaningless narrative. Also about half is actually written by the author, the rest is wish fulfilment in the worst form possible by others.

    Sounds like your average Spacebattles fanfic.

    I don't mind the industrial age stuff as long as the fic could be seen as a crack!fic. It's the part where girls are literally throwing themselves at the protagonist and the "reluctant" hero ended up having a threesome that bothers me.

    It feels like a male nerdy teenager writing this fic because he could not attract any girls in real life. And given that this is a SI fic, it just makes me feel very uncomfortable reading it.

    Edit: Was I too subtle? This isn't the place to take aim at the entirety of SB, nor do we need the de-rail. -Yak
